Overview of Chitra Nakshatra in Astrology

The deity of this Nakshatra is Vishwakarma, or Tvashtar, who was the divine architect. He has the power to beautify, to cause illusion or Maya, almost like creating magic. This Nakshatra is a very fertile Nakshatra for growth or success. It is the star of opportunity.

Vishwakarma created the city of Dwarka, Sudarshan Chakra of Lord Krishna, Trishul of Lord Shiva and Indraprastha city for Pandavas. He also created the vehicle of Kubera called Pushpaka Vimana. He is said to have a twin brother who is opposite Indra. His brother is the negative energy side of the natives in this Nakshatra.

There is a mythological story that to defeat a demon, Lord Vishnu took the avatar of a woman and had a child, Hariharasudan, with Lord Shiva. Harisudan was supposed to kill that demon. A king and queen found this baby Hariharsudan in a forest and raised him. 

When he grew up, the queen didn’t want him to be the heir to the throne. So, she pretended to have an illness and sent him to fetch milk from a tigress, saying it was the cure. The queen thought that he would be eaten by the tigress and die in the forest. He goes to the forest and returns, riding on a tigress. The queen then realises that he is not an ordinary human being but divine. So it is believed that the natives under this Nakshatra have the power to defeat the negativity in them with Harihara Shakti.

The symbol of this Nakshatra is pearl. In the zodiac wheel, Chitra Nakshatra is connected to the Virgo & Libra signs.
